This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidential Elections - Re-Election of 1864 - Lincoln. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The founding fathers of the United States created a system in which the American people had the power and responsibility to select their leader. Under this new order, George Washington, the first U.S. president, was elected in 1789.

At the time, only white men who owned property could vote, but the 15th 19th and 26th Amendments to the Constitution have since expanded the right to vote to all citizens over 18. Taking place every four years, presidential campaigns and elections have evolved into a series of fiercely fought, and sometimes controversial, provide a roadmap to the events of U.S. history.

It is hard for modern Americans to believe that Abraham Lincoln, one of history's most beloved Presidents, was nearly defeated in his reelection attempt in 1864. Yet by that summer, Lincoln himself feared he would lose. How could this happen?

Two reasons were of concern. The country had not elected an incumbent President for a 2nd term since Andrew Jackson in 1832. Nine Presidents in a row had served just 1term. Also, his embrace of emancipation was still a problem for many Northern voters.

The presentation covers the following:

Presidential Elections
Massive Casualty Count
Oppressed on All Sides
Lincoln v. McClellan
Andrew Johnson
Hopes of Negotiation
Union Success
Democratic Support
Lincoln Wins
